Stop Orthodontists From Promoting SeaWorld

SeaWorld Ed Shipul

Target: Dr. Morris N. Poole, President of American Association of Orthodontists

Goal: Stop the American Association of Orthodontists from promoting SeaWorld.

The opening ceremony of an event at the Orlando SeaWorld is being held by the American Association of Orthodontists. Life at SeaWorld is detrimental physically and mentally for the orcas and other marine animals.

Life in captivity has many negative consequences and one of them is the whales’ teeth. Many of the whales face dental trauma due their excessive biting on the metal bars and concrete walls of their imprisonment. These dental fractures can lead to infections which can cause heart disease. How can an organization all about teeth condone a company that does nothing to help their orcas’ health and teeth?

It is unacceptable to pardon this behavior. Sign this petition and demand the American Association of Orthodontists end their support of SeaWorld and bring their event elsewhere.


Dear Dr. Poole,

The American Association of Orthodontists is holding an event at SeaWorld in Orlando. Life at SeaWorld is not a happy one for the animals held captive there. The animals suffer physically and mentally. Even the orcas’ teeth are damaged due to their captivity. Many of the whales at SeaWorld have dental trauma due to the excessive biting on the metal bars and concrete walls of their imprisonment. The fractures in their teeth can lead to infection which can lead to heart disease.

Your association is all about maintaining a healthy smile. How can you do that while supporting a company that doesn’t care about their whales’ health and teeth? It is very hypocritical. There are many different entertainment venues in Orlando that don’t involve the exploitation of animals. Please consider taking your event elsewhere.
